Capital Mall: Permission granted to proceed

There was an appeal before the Tshwane Municipal Appeals Tribunal in April, to halt the development. That has subsequently been overturned, clearing the path for the development to commence.

The development of the mall will be phased. The first phase to be completed in 2021 will include 60 000 square metres. The design will enable the developers to easily add another 40 000 square metres in time.
